Use is as a condiment or as a spice like the East Indians use. Salt Bush is native to the Middle East. Just 3 grams taken daily has shown to provide improved blood sugar regulation in type 2 diabetes.

Bilberry, known as European blueberry, was used in France since 1945 to treat retinopathy, the deterioration of the retina in the eye, one of the many complications from diabetes. It protects the macula of the diabetic eye. Many diabetics have found improved vision using supplements from 80 to 16o mg 3 times a day. Gingkgo Biloba is one of the oldest living trees that has survived over 200 million years. So adaptable one survived the nuclear blast in Hiroshima.

Over a thousand scientific studies have been done over the last 40 years showing the value of ginkgo biloba in effective treatment of diabetes. The extract is widely prescribed in Europe today. It's an effective antioxidant. It improves the body's circulation and expands the small capillaries that nourish the extremities in the eyes, hands and feet. It inhibits the stickiness of cells, and helps reduces inflammation and allergic responses. It improves overall circulation in the body.

Among the oldest herbs known to man, ginseng is one of the best. It helps to lower blood pressure and can even raise it if it is too low. Just 3 grams before a meal can reduce blood sugar spikes in type 2 diabetics.
